Tough Mudder Makes Asia Debut on the Island of the Gods
The toughest event on the planet has descended upon Asia, in tropical Bali.
Founded in the US in 2010, Tough Mudder is a 16-20 km obstacle course challenge designed to test physical strength, stamina and mental grit. With no winners or clocks to race against, it is not about how fast you can cross the finish line; it is a challenge that emphasizes teamwork, camaraderie and accomplishing something you have not done before.
Since Tough Mudder’s inception, the company has hosted over 200 events globally, now including Tough Mudder Indonesia.
Will Dean, CEO & Founder of Tough Mudder, Inc, remarked,
“We are thrilled to now welcome Bali Mudders into the global tribe that is Mudder Nation, and we look forward to welcoming thousands more Mudders in the region at our upcoming events in Asia.”
In partnership with Seroja Partners, Tough Mudder made its Asia debut on 1 October 2016 at Jimbaran Hijau, a development situated among pristine forests, scenic flatlands and breath-taking cliffs hugging the Indian Ocean in Bali, Indonesia.
Attracting 1,500 participants from all walks of life, Tough Mudder Indonesia challenged Mudders to conquer quintessential obstacles such as the signature Block Ness Monster, taking teamwork to a whole new level where Mudders have to push, pull, and roll their way through slick, rotating barriers.
Mudders also faced the iconic Everest 2.0, a run up a quarter-pipe requiring both speed and teamwork and the classic Electroshock Therapy, where Mudders must finish strong together as they dodge between hanging wires charged with over 10,000 volts of electricity.
Joe Wadakethalakal, CEO of Seroja said,
“We’re proud to have been able to bring this unique event series to Asia for the first time. Seeing Mudders from Indonesia, Singapore, Australia, and around the world come together in Bali to work through challenges as a team was inspiring, and we’re excited to start planning our next event in Indonesia.”
